5 Weight Loss Lessons You Can Learn From Celebrities

Updated on September 19, 2015

Losing pounds in a week is an ambitious task, and knowledge of calories count and calorie burning needs to be clearly understood and laid out. For an Example if you want to lose 10 pounds in week you need to lose or burn round about 3500 calories in a day. Another important point to note with this is that, you need to take into account the food you eat during the day. If for example in a typical day, you eat roughly 2000 calories of food, you need to burn calories accordingly. Meaning that for every 2000 calories that you consume, you need to burn 5500 calories in order to successfully lose a pound. You must therefore ensure that the difference between how many calories you consume and how many calories that you burn is 3500.

To achieve this hard task we have decided to include in this article the experience of different celebrities and their dieting regimen and do and learn what we can to fast track our own dieting regimen. To lose weight in a week is a daunting task which requires serious commitment and discipline since it’s a long road ahead. Thus, who better to learn from than celebrities who have access to the best nutritionists in the world and the best trainers in the world?

On the other hand, we have always seen Hudson stay on the heavier side, but after her pregnancy we saw a remarkable weight loss from her. Both of their secret of course is weight watchers.
